WATER HARVEST. Our parish Lent offerings to help create wells and water for our sisters and brothers in India are still being collected.  Thank you so much for your self-denial and generosity. £650.02 has been donated so far.


TODAY IS GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY This Sunday is Good Shepherd Sunday. It is traditionally a day of prayer for vocations to the Priesthood. God calls each of us to serve him in some particular way so it is important for us to promote a culture of vocations within the church. A person might be called to live a single life, to marriage, to religious life or to the priesthood.  Please give generously to the collection today towards the promotion of vocations. Please also pray in particular to day for vocations to the priesthood for our diocese and for our current seminarians as they journey towards priesthood. They are Paschal Uche, Adrian Lowe, Michael Barwick, Tony Grant, Alexander Johnson, Damien Wade, Matúš Meleg and Jonathan Burden. Our new seminarian is Moses Itene who will start at Allen Hall in September. At the moment there are ten young men in the priesthood enquirers’ group. Thank you for your prayers and generosity.  Fr.

PARISH MEMBERSHIP. We are aware that some people have left the parish and while others have joined us.  To those newly arrived we say welcome and wish you a peaceful time here.  We hope and pray that your coming to St. Patricks will satisfy your need to have a meaningful relationship with God and help you to meet new friends. Do introduce yourself to Fr. Kevin and register with the Parish Secretary and make sure you are known in case you plan to have a child receive a sacrament or apply for a place in a Catholic school.


BAPTISM. Application forms for infant Baptism are available in the porch.  Please fill in and present to Parish Secretary during office hours and make an appointment to see Fr. Kevin.  It is unwise to organise a reception until the date of the baptism has been approved. You have to be registered in this parish for at least six months.  Please be aware that baptisms are celebrated on the first Saturday of the month.


ARE YOU AWARE that the Rosary is said each morning in the church at 9.05 am (just before the morning Mass)? All are welcome to participate.
